Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed. Twinkle is 3.5 years old and weighs 7 pounds. She's a sweet little girl, however she is a dog that came from a hoarder situation. She grew up with 110 other dogs but with extremely limited human interaction. With her foster family, which is a multi-dog household, she is somewhat trusting but when we've tried to put her into a different environment or situation, she reverts to her previous behaviors for a few days. She still spooks easily and although she does want to be pet and to get human attention, she has to be the one that initiates the contact. Twinkle's adoption fee is $250.

More About Chiweenie Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Dachshund. Indigo is a sweet little girl that was abandoned. She's about 9 to 10 mos. old and weighs 18 lbs. We're not exactly sure what she is. She has short little legs and a long body but she definitely has the characteristics of a Rat Terrier. She can leap 5 ft. into the air and pretty much jump onto and over anything. She would be an awesome agility dog. She loves to play, she loves people and she likes cats too. Her adoption fee is $350.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Davie, FL
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever. This gorgeous boy was found as a newborn puppy with his 9 other littermates under a bush in migrant farmland. His mom was a pure bred Black Labrador and his daddy unknown. He weighs 90 lbs and stands as tall as a Dane. Since he has the unfortunate distinction of being a black dog, he has been overlooked since he was a puppy and has been in rescue for over 7 years. He is between 7 to 8 yo and loves to play with other dogs. He is active and since he is so big, might not be the perfect companion for a dog under 20 lbs, but only because of his strength not for any aggressive reasons as he is super friendly. No good with cats. He was born with a docked tail...........no one can figure that one out .:)
